Low Sun and Van in December

I took this photo of a forgettable scene, but I do like the way the sun fills the sky. And how that contrail mimics the electric line’s swoop across the sky. And then I noticed the crisscrossing contrails against the original one I saw. I also like the glow of the sun on the road. And the silhouette quality of the elements in the photo picked out by the sun. And last, those strong heavy wires at the top of the photo.

I guess there is a lot to see in this picture after all, maybe?

      Yes, when I got out of the car and saw it I had to snap the photo, not knowing if it would convey what I saw, but this is in the spirit of it. The low-hanging ball of fire in the sky.

    That is gorgeous. I love it when the sun or the moon look super huge in a photo. Was wondering whether you’ve noticed far fewer vapour trails recently. Over here the lack of airplanes has been amazing. Where I live it’s a rarity to see a wispy trail, even one really high in the sky from the intercontinental routes. Not surprised to see from the weekend news that Mr Warren Buffet has ‘got out of airlines’ as they say!

      Thank you. I got out of our car and saw this sight, just snapped it with my phone. There was something about it that caught my attention, the sun that day.

      We have many vapor trails, the sky is never without crisscrossing lines, being near a large airport, but funny, only a day or so ago I was noticing that they are gone, you see maybe one in the sky at a time, if any. I also hear no airplane noise anymore, which we did all the time. I prefer train or bus travel myself, so I don’t miss the planes at all.

      Thank you. Another instance of suddenly, for just a minute, or a short time, it is like a window opened on another layer of being, or something, and the ordinary old sun was not ordinary, but exquisite.
